If you're having trouble teaching statistics using R, then you'll just love the statsTeachR collaboration.

It's being launched officially at the 2014 New England Statistics Symposium today.

Here's what it's about:
"statsTeachR is an open-access, online repository of modular lesson plans, a.k.a. "modules", for teaching statistics using R at the undergraduate and graduate level. Each module focuses on teaching a specific statistical concept. The modules range from introductory lessons in statistics and statistical computing to more advanced topics in statistics and biostatistics."
And there's more than "modules. There are lab. exercises (with solutions), and "courses".

I've already registered as a statsTeachR user, and this morning I played around with the module that provides an introduction to confidence intervals. The material is just great!

Who do we thank for this?
